exactly the obama administration thinks these strikes are legal. they say, let me say as simply as i can, in full accordance with the law, the united states government conducted targeted strikes. in full accordance with the law. we know that they do think it's legal. but they won't say why they think it's legal. the closest we have come to learning about how the obama administration justifies drone strikes is this. in the fall of 2011, "new york times" reporter charlie savidge wrote this story. this is about a week after awlaki was killed. the story describes a super secret 50-page memo written by an office within the justice department that effectively serves as the obama's administration's legal justification for why they think it's okay to kill an american citizen without a trial. now "the new york times" did not actually get to see this memo. they did not publish the memo, nor did they quote from it directly. the momentum mow was described to the reporter by anonymous sources. and that's when things got really weird. because after the times reported on the existence of the memo, the
chocolate cereal. ♪ chocolate. >>> today, the obama administration released its new and improved rules for contraception under the new affordable care act. yaah, new rules, the gist is this, everybody with health care insurance does get access to contraception. the catch is religious employers wouldn't have to contract, arrange or pay to anything in which they object to on religious grounds. so this is an attempt to have it a bit both ways on this issue. >> the president has been very clear on these issues. clear about what he believes are two compelling interests, which are the necessity of and the appropriateness of providing preventive services to women across the country, including contraception. and making sure that we are mindful of religious liberty. and he has instructed those who work for him on this issue to be cognizant on this issue. >> the way it works, is weird. religious employers and faith-based nonprofits like universities and hospitals and charities don't have to provide the contraception coverage for their employees, but the employees could get it with the outside ag
. >>> the obama administration, health care policy making sure that pretty much every woman has access to contraception. but what happens if you work for a religious organization? then it gets a little more complicated. we will explain the new rules next. hey, it's sara. i'm going pro. i've been using crest pro-health for a week. my dentist said it was gonna help transform my mouth.

, today, four years later at the start of the second term of the obama administration it was a similar scene for hillary clinton as she said goodbye to the same state department employees from almost the same spot where they welcomed her four years ago. >> now it's my great honor to introduce one last time the 67th secretary of state of the united states of america, hillary rodham clinton. [ cheering and applause ] >> oh. >> secretary clinton still greeted like a rock star today at the agency she has led for the past four years. hillary clinton, of course, is not just somebody who came in a very close second to barack obama in trying to win the democratic party's presidential nomination, who then got a high-ranking cabinet post as a consolation prize. no, hillary clinton is really her own thing. her career in public life, in public office is unlike anybody else in american history. she went from being an accomplished lawyer in her early career to being the first lady of arkansas. she then became a very high profile first lady of the united states for her husband's two terms in office.
fought the president on the debt ceiling. he called the obama administration the imperial presidency. he stepped out today to show there are no rough edges in this republican party. let's listen to cantor today. >> we'll advance proposals aimed at producing results in areas like education, health care, innovation, and job growth. our solutions will be based on the conservative principles of self-reliance, faith in the individual, trust in family, and accountability in government. our goal is to ensure that every american has a fair shot to earn success and achieve their dreams. >> what a cover-up. your party ought to be ashamed of itself. you spent months in every state legislative capital trying to keep black people and poor people from voting or young people. now you're out pretending that you care about opportunity in america. it's an absurdity eric cantor -- >> the speech by eric cantor was a very good speech. >> if it wasn't given by him maybe. >> eric cantor is a good guy. he's got a family. he cares about this country. he's a patriot. he cares about making government work better,
. it revealed incompetence at the top of the obama administration that is breathtaking. the president not concerned with americans under attack, secretary of state's all day long never once called to ask what might be done? the idea secretary not aware for request for satiric -- security saying can we help you out? nobody is hauled in this administration with national security. not just the failure of benghazi on negative benghazi but exposing the risk of facilities, citizens and their country to attacks worldwide. these people and not doing their jobs. >> the senior people are not from ambassador stevens was doing his. and we have a hint he was trying to negotiate arms transfers perhaps that is why he was meeting with the turkish ambassador, the last meeting he had. lou: suspend critical judgment for a man who has fallen in service of this country, but he was aware of the security lapse from it is noble he would assume those for himself but he did for two operatives as well try to save his life and others trying to feed these attacks much of the responsibility rests upon the recipe w
an american for assassination, it's the obama administration advancing novel legal theories. >> we have have as a basis for action a congressional statute that allows us to to operate and balking at congressional oversite. >> i have nothing on alleged memos regarding potentially classified memphis. >> this president when he was a senator excoriated the bush administration for its presumption of an imperial presidency and presidential powers. now that he's the president, he's lucky he doesn't have a senator obama who is chas chastg him from the floor of the united states senate. >> reporter: some of the obama supporters dabbing at the sand man in their eyes appear to have awakend to the double standard. >> i have to say i was definitely on the critical end of things as were members of my family. we were very, very, very concerned about how far the bush administration pushed the boundaries of not only what is constitutional but what is morally right, and this is definitely in the same category. >> obviously a democratic administration white house secret war policy memos are very different from
, but the small companies doing it. the very people president obama's administration doesn't listen to. they didn't put those folks on the jobs coucil that they disbanded. it's the big companies. we are not supporting them. brad, to you. seems to me that these kinds of problems get ignored and are not being fixed. >> absolutely. the fact that it's become the new normal. you just hit the nail on the head that we are numb and we don't challenge the people who are in power to actually provide results. you know, bill clinton said it best. there's about a trillion dollars just sitting on the sidelines of people who have no confidence anymore, not only our government fixing problems, but they are able to do it. what we need to do is hold the government's feet to the fire. the obama administration, the house, the senate because they are direct responsibility for why we've see such anemic growth, and to say to somebody looking for a job, it's coming, it's coming, four years? it's coming? no, it should be unacceptable. gerri: john, i want you to talk to some of the participation rates, labor rate issues,
administration's legal reasoning for why the administration believes president obama has the power to order the killing of americans in counterterrorism strikes around the world. look at this. ever since anybody knew such a document existed, this is how the administration has been coping with requests to see this document. this is a letter from the justice department telling the aclu that they neither confirm nor deny the existence of the documents described in your request. quote, the fact -- excuse me -- the very fact of the existence or nonexistence of such diagnostics is itself classified. that's what they've been saying for more than a year. but now as of tonight, the administration admitted that that legal reasoning memo exists. the associated press first breaking the news late tonight. nbc news confirming it. the president has directed the justice department to give the memo to the intelligence committees in congress. it is the first time that this will have been seen outside the administration itself. now, the administration has openly in speeches and in public comments asserted tha
, particularly on fox, i think this is very significant. you know, four years ago, as the obama administration was just getting started in its first term, lapierre was on with glen beck riling people up, talking to beck's paranoid audience about this gun grab that was coming. and all of this -- beyond alarmist, insane rhetoric and devicive rhetoric. >> how much is -- do you think people were just psychological? is this a male thing worried about somebody coming to get their appliance? i mean, what is this about? it seems deeper than just how many guns do you own? do they actually believe that the federal government is going to come door-to-door to law-abiding, regular class, people, looking for guns? do they actually believe that's going to happen? >> some of them do, i think. and i think they particularly believe it when there's a democrat in the white house. wayne lapierre is the person who talked about federal agents after oklahoma city. so this is a man who's been allowed to have a platform on the national stage, even though he is a wing nut. and, finally, you have someone reich chris wall
from radio listeners who sense a hypocrisy in what they see the obama administration being critical of harsh interrogation methods but going along with the drone program. is there some inherent hypocrisy in that? >> well, there was an interesting statistic in the first year of the obama administration. i think -- or perhaps over the first couple of years in the administration. he authorized more drone strikes and more people were killed in drone strikes that he authorized than the total number of people that had before passed through guantanamo bay. that crystallizes that hypocrisy people talk about. >> you could also argue that we know drone strikes work. you know, the jury still seems like it's out with regard to hash shall interrogation metz thod but drone strikes work. >> in terms of the morality, you know, if you determine that there are threats out there, there are bad guys that you need to take off the battlefield but you can't go there, you can't go to pakistan, you can't go to certain places, then what alternative do you have if you can't capture them. nornd, once you have
acting secretaries of commerce during the obama administration only 2 confirmed secretaries of commerce. so it's it not a major priority. >> all right. but i don't think the secretary of commerce does anything certainly hasn't done much lately because there isn't one. >> bill: they don't do anything. oversight? >> it is, as you would infer, it's a little patronage. we are hearing very clearly that the president can't find anybody to take the job. i don't buy that penny is going to take this job. this is an accomplished business woman. she is an important community figure in chicago. and she has got bigger fish to fry. >> bill: she is really far left person. >> no question about it. >> bill: she is not going to look out for me or you or anybody else. she is going to push a very left wing agenda on to the commerce department. >> which is probably going to be pretty concern that the of the president himself. >> that brings back to initial comment she doesn't care anymore. going to appoint these people. >> if he can find one. >> channeling his inner martin van buren. you know the master. ki
as for the obama administration going forward. >> the clip tons established a standard for full disclosure. it caused them a few headaches when people found out who was contributing to the clinton foundation. once that was done the nomination proceeded. that's the precedent we're dealing with here. >> chuck hagel gave a lot of speeches, joel. he will not disclose the source of that funding. they were overseas -- involved in an investment bank or private equity operation in nebraska, did a lot of foreign funding. chuck hagel was engaged in that stuff. he is not going to tell. you remember many years ago after the horrible 9/11, they had a commission. they wanted henry kissinger to run that commission. not even full time. he refused to disclose his foreign funding sources and clients. so i got to believe that hagel won't. >> that's right, of course kissinger got into a lot of trouble there and had to pull out. hare reid said at the time what are they hiding? the kissinger folks and the bush administration. that's the same question that hagel is facing now. i think the real question is the lo
finish tonight with this. the obama administration has found a way to offer birth control to women who want it without infringing on religious belief. it's a victory for the president and roman catholics. how do we ensure that religious organizations are not forced to pay for it? allow employees of religious institutions access to stand alone coverage for birth control from a third party. covering the costs with small offsets have to take parts or they will put their policies on sale. the key here is it gets around a pair of goals that were in don flikt. regular use of birth control is one that works. the other goal is to protect religions from doing something they believe is morally wrong. my own belief is that the solution the obama administration reached here is win/win. i say this to someone who believes in the clinton case, that abortion should be safe, legal and rare. getting birth control to women for free will keep it rare. to keep the catholic church out of that transaion keeps it closer to the goal.
are the target. what the obama administration wants to do about it. cheryl: super blackout. who is responsible in what it will cost. dennis: this super bowl got the best ratings ever, into one the ad bowl? the best and the very worst. nicole petallides at the new york stock exchange up 149 on the dow. down now. nicole: a selloff day. you get some, you give some back. we are pulling back, down about 130 points right now. we're not looking at dow 14,000 like we were on friday. a monumental day for all of those after five years from 2007 when i have been waiting and finally got it. today a different story, there are concerns once again about europe and as a result the dollar gaining strength, and that weighs on the market. take a look at blackberry, a name in the headlines, selling off dramatically and now we have endless coming out and talking positively putting it in saying obviously they are believing in the company, the price targets $22 up from $12, and the stock is really jumping today. cheryl: a little late to the party. but we will take it, at least the shareholders will. we will see you

"newsroom" starts now. >>> good morning. thanks for being with me. i'm carol costello reporting from washington. this just in. we are keeping our eyes on the stock market as we cross the top of the hour. because the dow is tanking. it has been down around 100 points since the opening bell rang 30 minutes ago. alison kosik is at the new york stock exchange. why is this happening? >> so close, yet so far. just when the dow was within striking distance of its all-time high we are seeing this pullback. hey, it was fun on friday watching the dow hit 14,000. it went past that for first time in five years. now we are watching the dow pull further away from that milestone. what happened was on friday, you saw the dow rally pretty much on an upbeat jobs report from january. t
to release the secret memos is hypocritical. >> obama administration that released all of these opinions from the office of legal counsel about the bush administration's treatment of detainees. so, why the different standards? >> brennan is expected to be pressed thursday not only on the targeted killing program but the cia interrogation program. critics call torture and whether he was or knows the source of these national security leaks to the media shep. >> shepard: you mentioned critics, catherine, many of them are saying the president isn't really living up to his own promises. >> they point to the president's national security speech archives just six months into his first term. >> whenever we cannot release certain information to the public for valid national security reasons, i will insist that there is oversight of my actions. by congress or by the courts. >> the attorney general arguing today the administration's legal review that justified the targeted killing of american the cleric anwar al awlaki an alleged leader in yemen met the legal standards. >> our primary concern is to keep
? joining us now is oregon democratic senator ron wyden, who has repeatedly asked the obama administration bower drone policy. senator wyden, it's good to see you. thank you for being with us. >> thank you for having me again. >> did you not in fact get what you had asked the president to give you and that you thought you would be getting this morning based on your conversation with the president last night? >> rachel, it's not clear. the fact is, and i went in first thing this morning, i was able to read some information that was helpful. i'm just not convinced yet that it is the full legal analysis that we need to do to do vigorous oversight. what today was really about is of course it was a nomination hearing for john brennan. but it ultimately was a question of upholding our system of checks and balances in government. and i think that system is out of whack these days and we've got to do some more for transparency and accountability in getting those checks and balances back. >> in terms of this specific program that you've been asking about the legal advice for, specifically targeting

for spinning weird conservative conspiracy theories by the obama administration's secret government plan to track law abiding citizens and und undermine the citizens, the times are changing, house and senate working on the bills to include background checks and limiting ammunition magazines. and no universal registry of all citizens. tomorrow, a bipartisan group in the house will also introduce a bill that will make the gun trafficking a federal crime and impose stricter penalties on "straw purchasers" or people who buy firearms for those who can't. they would only get in trouble of law enforcement was able to prove they bought a gun for a nonpurchaser, you had to have known they were a criminal. the new law, which mirrors one already introduced in the senate would make it illegal for straw purchasers to buy and transfer fa firearms to anyone banned from having one at all. but the question is where does congress stand on passing bans? >> you should restore the military-style ban, and restore the ten-round magazines. that deserves a vote in congress, because weapons of war have no place i
what would happen if a republican president had done what the obama administration has done as far as the drone program is concerned. >> sean: i mean, that's a good point. because here obama with no real criteria is going to be the judge, juror and executioner and going to allow for the assassination of american citizens, there's no other term, we can't assassinate foreign leaders because these are the same people that complained bitterly and eviscerated george w. bush. my conclusion, all of these democrats not only owe bush a policy, but politicized war. i'm not against drone strikes, but we've got to have a criteria. i'm not against enhanced interrogation and they're the ones inconsistent. your reaction. >> you're exactly right if the fifth amendment due process clause means anything, it ought to mean before the u.s. government can snuff out the life of an american citizen there ought to be some definable standard against which that citizen is judged and that citizen will be determined to be an imminent threat against the u.s. government. but this is a standardless determination
as they happen. and the fiery capitol hill, and drones abrennan staunch y defending the obama administration use of drones against administration. >> i'd like to ask you about the status of the administration's efforts to institutionlize rules and procedures and conduct for drone strikes, in particular, how you see your role as cia director in that approval process. >> the president has insisted that any actions we take will be legally grounded, will be thoroughly anchored in intelligence, will have the appropriate review process, approval process before any action is contemplated including those actions that might involve the use of legal force. the fifth amendment is pretty clear no deprivation of life, liberty or property without a due process of law and we're depriving american citizens with their life when we target them with a drone attack. >> if the executive branch makes a mistake and kills the wrong person or a group of the wrong people, how should the government acknowledge that. >> i believe we need to acknowledge that. i believe we need to acknowledge it to our foreign partners. we n
